Party Prep

Last night we gave a 40th birthday party here OPP in honor of the fabulous office administrator who keeps Mr. Doctor and partners on the right track.  He makes all of our lives so much easier and we were all thrilled to get together and throw a celebration for him!

I ran around and took a few pics of the party prep with my i phone…

Had fun planning flowers and knew I wanted to try an arrangement with the tall spiky eremurus when I spotted them at my wholesale florist shop.  Combined them with the extra large hydrangeas and added the flowering eucalyptus dripping down at the last minute.  The statice and bright roses gave me some bright color to complement the mexican themed dinner that we served.  My dining room photographs always come out looking a little peachy for some reason.  There eremurus are much more pink than they appear in the photos…

Here’s a little news – my new camera arrived yesterday and I have not had time to do much with it yet – perhaps I will be able to get truer color now!

grabbed a package of pretty orange lilies and added more of the flowering eucalyptus for the mantel…

I am loving the new throw pillows I just added for outdoor seating.

 We had not cleared away the magnolia trash when I took this…


a friend’s runner brought back from Guatemala gave a pretty punch…


Number two son is coming in this morning for a visit and we are all excited to see him.

Hope you have a restful Sunday…
